Prepare for the evening:
If you call Michiana home, you can pick up a supply kit with all the materials you’ll need to make each ornament during the program. Each kit contains supplies for four people. A limited number of kits will be available. Pick-up is available on Sunday, December 6, from 12:00–3:00 p.m. in the parking lot of the Compton Family Ice Arena. Drive up to the bus shelter and we’ll bring the kit to your car.
If you don’t live in our area, you can still join in the fun! Here are the supplies you will need to make the ornaments:
- 8.5” x 11” sheets of paper in a variety of colors/patterns
- paper straws
- white glue, Glue Dots, glue stick, or double-sided tape

- large round beads (wooden, plastic, or glass)
